Professor Zemer responds to Ms. Mills’s critique of moral rights, including the right of integrity, by arguing that protection of the right of integrity strengthens authorship morality.  He observes that the “bundle of sticks” conception of property is not absolute and allows for the division of rights to a particular piece of property.  Similarly, copyright law allows for division such that certain rights, including the right of integrity, can be protected.  Finally, Professor Zemer argues that there is intrinsic value for artists in the artistic enterprise that is unaddressed by Ms. Mills’s critique of moral rights.  The value also extends to the public through the protection of art and its creative message.
